FANCY A BREW? (Episode 36) - Talking to Dr Alice Horton about the effects of Micro Plastics in our waters
Oct 17th, 2020
This week I'm talking to talking to Dr Alice Horton an Anthropogenic Contaminants Scientist at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton about the effects of micro plastics in our waters.
Over a brew Alice tells me about how she investigates the accumulation, behaviour and ecological effects of microplastics in the aquatic environment.
Grab yourself a brew and listen to her interesting story.

Alice is an Anthropogenic Contaminants Scientist at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, investigating the accumulation, behaviour and ecological effects of microplastics in the aquatic environment.
She is especially interested to understand how microplastics may cause damaging effects to organisms, either independently or in association with chemicals. In order to understand how and why organisms will come into contact with microplastics, she is also keen to understand how the connections between land, lakes, rivers and the sea lead to the input and transport of microplastics within the environment.
Alongside her research she works closely with stakeholders to integrate academic research with industry, policymakers and businesses to more efficiently address the many remaining questions on microplastics within the environment.

✅ “Fancy a brew?” a Scuba Diving inspired chat over a brew about life, adventure, mental and physical resilience and determination to succeed in the sport we love.
✅ The podcast where I’ll be talking to those who influenced me as a diver, about their incredible experiences and how they found mental and physical resilience, whilst devoting their lives to Scuba Diving. These will (hopefully) be insightful and exciting discussions about people taking on scuba diving and its challenges, and how they came out the other side stronger through finding inspiration in connecting with nature’s underwater world.
